A new day had arrived!

I fed my cat and had my Quiet Time before Ken woke up.

Today Ken was off to the Sale-yards down in Gloucester. He had arranged with a good friend of his, who lives in Nabiac, to meet up with him, and for the two of them to go to the cattle sales together. I was so happy for Ken as he is a social fellow yet does not go out that much.

I waved a fond farewell to my man at just after half past eight in the morning as he bumped, banged and created dust clouds, (My goodness gracious golly gee – dehydrated mud already!) when he made his way down to our river crossing and set sail to meet up with his pal, Ron.

I thought that today I would have a lovely quiet day, probably doing some reading and just relaxing.

Ken got home at about half past four in the afternoon tired, weary and a little disappointed (no make that VERY disappointed) in the cattle prices at the sale today.

Look, it goes like that. Sometimes one receives incredibly good prices and other times, terrible ones. It is the luck of the draw, and over which one has no control. I look at it this way, we got paid some money and am grateful for whatever we got as the farm always needs it.

Ken and I are off to town tomorrow morning as I need to do my grocery shopping for the week.

Paddy is coming up to the farm this coming Monday and will be with us for a few days. I always look forward to his visits as he is great company for us and he works hard too to help Ken.

I slipped into bed early – well I thought it was early, but it was already nine o’clock, which is not early for me! Ken followed my example shortly afterwards.

What lesson did I learn today? To be happy with the choices I make and not be sorry for myself.

What am I grateful for today? That our cattle arrived safely in Gloucester and were all sold.

My saying for today is …
